Colby, Jonathan, who left behind him an honored memory as one of the hardy pioneers of southeast Minnesota, was born in Corinth, Orange County, Vermont, September 4, 1809. The first 46 years of his life were spent in his native state, and in 1831 he was there married to Malinda Pratt, who died in 1854. Of that union five children were born, of whom Mrs. John Q. Richardson is living. Mr. Colby continued his residence in Vermont for a year after the death of his wife, and then he and his son, L. D. Colby, joined the throng of gold seekers on the way to California, where for two years they were engaged in mining. They then returned to Vermont, remained there a year, and in 1858 came to Minnesota, stopping at Elgin until the following spring. Jonathan Colby then took a claim in Whitewater Township, Winona County the farm later owned by David McCarty but three years later moved to a farm a few miles southeast of Plainview, in Plainview Township, Wabasha County. In 1859 he married his second wife, Azubah Melendy, and until 1897, a period of 37 years, was actively engaged in looking after his farm, being recognized as a practical and successful agriculturist, and an excellent man and citizen. His health finally began to fail, and for a year before his death he was obliged to leave business affairs to the care of his wife. On January 16, 1898, he passed away, deeply mourned by his family, friends, and fellow citizens. Before leaving his native state he had connected himself with the Freewill Baptist church, and had remained faithful to its teachings. He was a man of good principle, good business judgments, and had bettered the world by his having lived.

PAST AND PRESENT OF MENARD COUNTY, ILLINOIS - 1905
Chicago: The S.J. Clarke Publishing Company

JONATHAN COLBY, deceased, during the period between the pioneer epoch in the history of Menard county and the latter part of the nineteenth century, so utilized his opportunities and the business conditions of this part of the state that he gained a place among its extensive landowners and substantial citizens, and, moreover, he always maintained an honorable reputation and an unspotted record for business integrity. He was born in Hopkinton, New Hampshire, seven miles from Concord, March 10, 1808, and was a son of Timothy and Lydia (Herrick) Colby, the former a native of New Hampshire and the latter of Massachusetts, both representing old families of New England. Timothy Colby was a farmer and lumberman of the east and in addition to the tilling of the sail operated a lumber mill, becoming, through the careful conduct of his business interests, a well-to-do man of his locality. In addition to his other interests he furnished shipmasts for the shipwrights of Portsmouth. His last days were spent at the old homestead in the Granite state and both he and his wife died when about ninety years of age.

Jonathan Colby began his education in a district school and also attended a select school of Hopkinton, and when he attained his majority he went to Boston, where he engaged as a clerk in a mercantile store. He afterward removed to western New York, when he was about twenty-five years of age, but did not tarry long in the Empire state. Starting westward, he made his way to Chicago by canal and the Great Lakes, and thence proceeded to Salem, Illinois, where he purchased land in what is now Petersburg township, the purchase price being a dollar and a quarter per acre. Abraham Lincoln was at that time postmaster of Salem. A friend from the east brought five letters for Mr. Colby to Illinois, but stopping in Chicago he sent the letters on by mail. Mr. Lincoln, putting the letters in his big hat, went out to collect from Mr. Colby the price of postage-twenty-five cents apiece, or a dollar and a quarter for all-which at that time was the price of an acre of land. Today the land sells for one hundred and forty dollars per acre, while the postage on that amount of mail would be ten cents. Arriving in this county in 1834, Mr. Colby turned his attention to farming and as the years passed by he prospered. He invested his earnings, above what was needed for the expenses of the home and farm, in more land and eventually became the owner of twelve or fourteen hundred acres, which gradually increased in value, owing to the cultivation he bestowed upon it and a rise consequent upon the increased population. He was one of the well-to-do men of Menard county, and his success was attributable to his own efforts.

Mr. Colby was married in 1837 to Miss Lydia Ingals, a native of Connecticut and a daughter of Ephriam and Lucy Ingals, of Pomfret, Connecticut, who died in that state, their children afterward coming west to Cass county, Illinois. It was in this neighborhood that Mrs. Colby met her future husband. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Colby were born six children: William D., a resident of Henry county, Illinois; Mrs. Mary F.Dixon, of Menard county; Sarah S., the widow of John Beekman, of Menard county; Henry H., who is living at Rock Creek, Menard county; Mrs. Maria L. Rucker, of Boston, Massachusetts; Grosvenor G., a resident of Petersburg township. The father died in the fall of 1885 and the mother's death occurred in the fall of 1858. They were both members of the Congregational church and Mr. Colby was a Whig in his political views, until the dissolution of the party, when he joined the ranks of the new Republican party. Eh was never an office seeker, but was interested in public progress and improvement and was the champion of many progressive measures. He enjoyed in large measure the respect, confidence and admiration of his fellow men, because of his success and the straightforward manner in which it was gained, and from pioneer times to his death he was classed with the valued citizens of his community.

Joseph COLBY was born on 1 DEC 1740 in Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. He died on 6 APR 1826 at Deer Isle, Hancock County, Maine. He was a cordwainer.
Joseph was a "corwainer" and they both owned the covenant in the Kingston Church, May 5, 1763. His first three children were born while residing in Kingston, then they emigrated to what is now the Stonington Precinct of Deer Isle, Maine. A list of early settlers at Deer Isle has been perseved, entitled "the Number of Inhabitants of Deer Island and when settled on that lsland", which Joseph Colbe, 1765" Documents have been found in many instances which have proven many dates on this list to be incorrect. The fact that Joseph's third chid Joseph, was baptized in Newbury, Mass. March 30, 1766 might indicate that Joseph and his wife left Kingston, N.H. for Newbury, about 1765, either before or after their son was baptized in 1766, then moved permanently to Deer Isle. The 1800 Census of Deer Isle also states that Joseph emigrated to Deer Isle from Newbury. Depositions in the "Kent Claim" shows Joseph came here in 1768.

The first church record book kept by Rev. Peter Powere, 1785-6, shows that Joseph was a signer of the "Confession of Faith" and "Church Covenant" his name also appears on the petitions sent early from Deer Isle to the General Court at Mass., 1784/5. etc. Historian Hosmer says Joseph Colby, "he settled upon the lost of land lying south of and adjoinging that of Captain Belcher Tyler. He had a two hundred acre lot set off to him, which wa with the limits of the Kent Claim. In the suit at law, I have understood that he claimed, in addition to his right as an early settler, That Kent had contracted to sell him the land, and in payment he was to perform a cetain amount of labor upon the mill built by Kent and upon the dam, which he performed; but upon what ground he held the land we do not know. He was a native of Newbury, Mass., or some place in that vicinity and was born in 1744 - - and his son Thomas, born in 1768, was the first child born of white parents in that part of town.

"The Kent Claim" as it was called, was a subject of litigation for several years. It covered the land settled by Joseph Colby, the lawsuit being prolonged for several years in the Courts of Lincoln County. Mr Colby had to frequently attend court, and, as the practice was then, the jurors were chosen and could serve as often as they would return, and he was, while his case was in court, a juryman, as it enabled him to meet his expenses of travel to and from the shire-town, which was Pownalborough, near the towns of Dreseden and Wiscasset". The final divison between the Colby claim on the south and the Kent Claim on the north, can best be seen in the Peters survey map where one will find, leading from the peak of a cove in Southwest Harbor, a line that Peters marked S. 67 30" west separating Belcjer Tyler on the north from Joseph Colby on the south, same end in Elisha Dunham (20) lot.

Joseph Colby, Sr. was a soldier in the Revolutionary War having enlisted August 3, 1779, as a private in Captain Nathaniel Fale's Co. service 13 days, company marched to Majorbagaduce by order of General Lowell; Discharged August 15, 1779.

Joseph was baptized 28 Dec 1740; married at Kingston, NH, where he was a cordwainer. He and Sarah both owned the covenant of the Kingston Church, 5 May 1763, but removed to Deer Isle, ME abt 1766. All his children were born at Kingston, NH.

Joseph COLBY was baptized on 30 MAR 1766 in Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. He was born in 1766 in Kingston, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. He has Ancestral File Number 1TTG-RDP. Jospeh Colby was baptized at the 1st Congo Church in Newbury, March 30, 1766. He married Eunice Thurlow, born in Newbury, Mass. on January 13, 1772, a sister of old Sire (Mill) David Thurlow of Crotch Island.

Joseph was a farmer, millwright, shipbuilder and carpenter. He and his brother Thomas and his brother-in-law, David Thurlow, built a mill at the mouth of the pond or crotch on Crotch Island where they sawed lumber for houses and vessels. They built several large vessels there. One was the old topsail schooner, the St. Paul, which came ashore (Captain Moody Thurlow) and rotted about 300 feet south of the Will Smith-Noyes store lot. Another was the Massey or Mercy which was blown ashore on the south side of Green Head and rotted there.

Joseph lived at Jacks Cornor and went back and forth to his work on Thurlows or Crotch Island and his brother Thomas lived on the present George Redman lot on the Cross Road. Joseph lived in a big two story house that was torn down, and stood on the foundation of the present (1903) Colby house at Jacks Corner. The house now standing there was built just opposite Bill Gross ( on the eastern side of the road, where now is only a cellar). When Abraham Colby and his wife died (Abraham was drowned, May 7, 1839 on the Penobscot River by being knocked of his pinkie, the house was bought by Stephen Colby, who bought out the heirs of the Colby lot, who then tore down the old shattered Colby house and moved the new on, purchased upon it.
